comments from john boehner. speaker boehner added that the growing threat cannot be ignored. here's a portion of that stakeout from capitol hill earlier today. >> i'd like to welcome prime minister netanyahu to the united states capitol. the united states congress will always stand by israel and the united states congress will never allow israel to stand alone. the looming threat of nuclear iran cannot be ignored. ambiguity that could lead to serious miscalculations, which is what we collectively hope to avoid. it's my sincere preference and belief that the united states and israel both need to be clear in its communications with each other and our communications to the iranians. now is the time to stand together, and we are here today to tell our prime minister that congress intends to do so. madam pell sichlt pell sichlt. >> thank you mr. speaker. i'm pleased to join us in welcoming our distinguished guest, the prime minister of the jewish state of israel once again to the capitol of the united states. i associate myself with your remarks in terms of our commitment to the securi

bomb into the lap of the republican speaker of the house, john boehner. back went republicans thought they had a winning issue in trying to roll back women's access to contraception in america, they introduced an anti-contraception amendment in the senate that democrats, who control the senate, were super happy to hold a vote on the democrats were happy about that because they wanted to get all of the republicans in the senate on the record with an anti-contraception vote, talking to you, scott brown, and because the democrats in the senate knew that it would fail when they voted on it. it did fail. but once it failed, republicans said they were still convinced need great political issue with this anti-contraception thing. their amendment was called the blunt-rubio amendment, rubio for marco rubio, widely considered to be in the running for the republicans' vice presidential nominee this year. he would be the vice presidential nominee to whose name is on the anti-contraception bill if he is tapped for that job. the other sponsor who had his name on the bill is roy blunt, blunt-rubio,

an overall approval rating of historically low levels. coincidentally the same time john boehner became speaker of the house. while the public disapproves of congress as a whole, congress itself disapproves of one man in particular, january boehner. the key stone pipeline failed to receive the necessary votes, a measure speaker boehner lobbied for asteridding the president for opposing the measure. >> by lobbying against the pipeline, the president of the united states is lobbying for sending north american energy to china and lobbying against american jobs. >> the key stone vote seems to be part of a growing trend on capitol hill, anything the speaker likes will not pass. mr. boehner has been pushing a highway bill which he claimed was paramount in his plan to create jobs, a bill the speaker was forced to strap today after having failed to convince members of his own party to support it. failing to rally support around a pet bill may end up being small potatoes compared to trying to prevent a government shut down. appropriations would be capped $20 billion below what boehner agreed to

. >> it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would walk away from this kind of deal. visit we are back on the young turks. we told you about the grand bargain president obama has been trying to do with the republicans. the washington post has a very clear article on what happened back in july and how terrible a negotiator president obama was during those days, if you believe he actually cares about progressive priorities, which by the end of this, i'm not sure i believe. let's look at what the grand bargain is, cutting $1.2 trillion in agency cuts, lowers the cost of living for social security, so that's a huge cut for social security, $250 billion in medicare cuts, more in medicaid. you're saying look, these are progressive priorities that are getting hammered. what are we getting in turn? we're supposed to get a tax increase. is that how it went down? not exactly. let me give you a quote: >> president obama agreed, in other words no tax increases for the rich. but then wait a minute, there had to be some sort of tax increase, otherwise what's the bargain part? well here come

of speaker john boehner and president obama. in this week's "new york times" requesting magazine, the way their relationship crumbled during last summer's debt deal is described as "the awkward undoing of a brief teenage romance minus the texting and facebook unfriending." ryan lizza, you're a capitol hill denyizan. the story is an exhaustive account of what went down during the debt negotiations. i want to pull the take away here is what's undeniable despite all the furious efforts to pedal a different story that obama managed to get his closest allies to sign off on what he wanted them to do and boehner couldn't. but what do you make of that statement? >> that sort of captures the fundamental nature of the two parties right now. we have a president with a more idea logically diverse coalition, more moderates in the democratic coalition than in the republican coalition. and who was willing to go pretty far to the point where a lot of liberals who now see how far obama was willing to go are not very happy about it and boehner who seems to be a dealmaker, someone that wanted to get a deal

agreed to it. watch. >> what we had offered speaker boehner was over a trillion dollars in cuts to discretionary spending both domestic and defense. we then offered additional $650 billion in cuts to entitlement programs medicare, medicaid, social security. in addition, what we sought was revenues that were actually less than what the gaining of six signed off on. it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would walk away from this kind of deal and frank leg, if you look at the commentary out there there are a lot of republicans that are puzzled as to why it couldn't get done. >> yeah, the republicans because that's a republican's dream come true that you agreed to. why did you do that? because honestly, in my opinion he cares a lot more about whether it helps him with politics than he cares about progressive priorities, which i'm not sure that he actually shares. but even all this was not enough for boehner. now at one point, president obama said oh, my god the gaining of six came out with a proposal with two-point truly $1 tax increases. his chief of staff at the time said w

tough on romney today. the speaker of the house, john boehner had something to say to his party's likely nominee. >> clearly the president is overseas and at a conference. while the president is overseas i think it is appropriate that people not be critical of him or of our country. >> finally. he is the winner in today's game of sand box politics. it sounds like the speaker was trying to rise above the rhetoric which started with a little moment caught on camera on a live mic yesterday. that comment was about the missile defense shield but president obama has championed and russia opposes. it overshadowed a lot of the president's trip to sol. we pointed out that something that russia wants is problematic. so today the president tried to explain himself. >> first of all are the mics on? look, what i said yesterday is i think something that everybody in this room understands. arms control is extraordinary complex and technical. the only way to get it done is if you can consult and build a strong basis of understanding between countries as well as within countries. i don't think it is a su

boehner, what an idiot. >> it is never happen. never, ever. he is always upbeat. particularly about congress. >> how can you not be upbeat? choose control. introducing gold choice. the freedom you can only get from hertz to keep the car you reserved or simply choose another. and it's free. ya know, for whoever you are that day. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz. two of the most important are energy security and economic growth. north america actually has one of the largest oil reserves in the world. a large part of that is oil sands. this resource has the ability to create hundreds of thousands of jobs. at our kearl project in canada, we'll be able to produce these oil sands with the same emissions as many other oils and that's a huge breakthrough. that's good for our country's energy security and our economy. and i thought "i can't do this, it's just too hard." then there was a moment. when i decided to find a way to keep going. go for olympic gold and go to college too.

that live. earlier today, house speaker john boehner said he's confident the republican budget blueprint will have enough support in the house when it comes up for votes next week. the republican blueprint was unveiled midweek by the budget committee, and they passed it last night. this briefing is 15 minutes. >> morning, everyone. >> morning. >> you know, gas prices are rising and americans are frustrated with the gap between the president's words and his actions. the president now says he supports the republican all of the above energy strategy for our country. but for three years, his administration has made every effort to block, delay and restrict new energy production in our country. he claims that he wants to address rising gas prices, but his policies are actually making matters worse for families and small businesses. and the only recent action the president has taken on energy involved lobbying senators, personally and successfully, to prevent construction of the key stone pipeline. yet today he is out in oklahoma, trying to take credit for a part of the pipeline that doesn't e

above politics. that's what the president is trying to do. >> i was wondering if speaker boehner had woken up because i haven't heard thing from him today. some of the republican candidates are trashing the jobs numbers. it's getting harder and harder to claim the economy isn't getting better. >> it's somewhat unfathomable. martin, we have created just short of four million jobs in the past two years. 1.3 million in the past six months. there's no one who is not a complete partisan who can't say that while we have more to do, that we're headed in the right direction. look, this really undermines any claim that mitt romney has on the presidency. he's supposed to be about the economy. we know he had a sorry record on that in massachusetts. we know he was a corporate raider, eliminating jobs for his own profit. he really dunt have an argument against the president anymore because we're slowly, but surely headed in the right direction. >> brad woodhouse p thank you for joining us. stay with us. the week's top lines are coming up. >> it's super tuesday. it's like the super bowl of politic
